The diamond growing process is highly energy intensive. By employing 100% solar power, Israel-based Lusix is contributing significantly to the reduction of emissions in the diamond industry.

Lusix, a prime grower of lab-grown diamonds (LGDs), unveiled its Sun Grown Diamonds, revealing that its entire diamond growing operation is now 100% solar powered. The brand is the world’s first producer of 100% solar powered lab-grown diamonds.

Lusix announced that the entire Company, including all its diamond growing operations, is fully powered by a dedicated 30-megawatt solar farm situated in southern Israel, ensuring that all the energy consumption is 100% accounted for by solar power. This significant milestone in lab-grown diamond production supports the Company’s mission to sustainably produce the highest quality lab-grown diamonds. Lusix will supply its solar powered lab-grown diamonds under the commercial name: Sun Grown Diamonds.

“Being the first company to power its entire diamond growing operation with solar energy, we are setting new sustainability standards – and are making a very powerful statement: lab-grown diamonds of even the very highest quality can be produced sustainably, meeting an ever-increasing consumer desire for luxury goods that are thrilling to own and sustainably created.” – said Benny Landa, LUSIX chairman and founder.

“LUSIX is committed to the highest level of sustainable practices and is sustainable-certified by SCS Global Services, an independent verification authority,” said LUSIX CEO Dr. Silviu Reinhorn. “With Sun Grown DiamondsTM we offer our customers not only confidence in the sustainable production methods we use to create our products, but also greater transparency as to their origin. Harnessing the power of the sun to grow one of nature’s most precious gifts, diamonds, is a truly remarkable milestone for LUSIX.”

The “green” diamonds are grown in Israel in the world’s most scientifically advanced manufacturing facility. The Company is vertically integrated, from the design and manufacture of its own custom-made reactors to large scale production of premium quality diamonds. They are also chosen by leading luxury brands worldwide including a recent investment by LVMH Luxury Ventures.
